Electives

WELCOME TO AEE ELECTIVES!

AEE provides your student with many opportunities in academics and extra curricular actives. Our school follows the "A through G" requirements, ensuring that each student will receive a well rounded education, while providing them with the qualifying requirements to apply to a University of California school of choice. The elective courses offered in AEE align with our career pathways of social justice and eduction. Some courses are part of the graduation requirements, others to further enrich the students with information and experiences relevant to these pathways. Our elective teachers are firm believers in interdisciplinary education, and work with AEE core subject area teachers to create thematic units. So for example, students may be studying World War II in history. In art, they will create a self portrait using propaganda, as both Allied and Axis countries did during wartime. They go to the Museum of Tolerance as a field trip, then learn about diversity acceptance in Child Development.
 
Elective courses offered:
  • Art: Digital Imaging, Introduction to Art
  • Career Tech: Child Development, Educational Psychology of Children, Leadership
